Boston, Massachusetts 

dedicated to 

Ruth hi Danielson 


Simmons lost an inspired residence hall administrator and the campus 
students an interested, loyal and sympathetic friend with the death of Miss 
Ruth Huntington Danielson on November 24. Miss Danielson became such 
a part of the campus life during her twelve years at Simmons that it is 
difficult to imagine the dorms, especially Evans Hall, without her. 

The door to her living room was always open, and the students were free 
to drop in at any time for a chat, a cigarette or a conference. Wednesday 
evening demitasse in Evans living room with Miss Danielson was only one 
example of her personal touch on campus living. 

Known as Miss Danielson by the College, she was affectionately called 
Danny by her girls and it is as Danny we'll remember her.

The administration and instructors are two indispensable parts 
of Simmons. Without either our College could not exist. Working 
in cooperation with Stu-G, they strive for the best for Simmons 


The eight schools comprising Simmons College give to the 
students not only professional and liberal arts training, but 
also leave them with a feeling of pride in their work and of 
comradeship toward their fellow students.

Each year new students appear to replace old and familiar faces. 
We've captured for posterity the officers and members of the 
classes of 1954, 1955, 1956, and 1957. 


Our four years at Simmons represent more than studies, classes, 
and exams. They also are the traditions, coffee hours, proms and 
parties which mean well-balanced college living.

Praising thy Consul and trusting thy truth . . . 

The Simmons community is very similar to a huge theatrical produc- 
tion with the Student Government, Faculty and Administration working 
cooperatively in order that a student's four years at Simmons may be 
happy and meaningful. 

The student has the leading role, actively participating in the College 
community through her Student Government. The Stu-G is a vital part 
of Simmons existence, for through it students can direct their own lives. 

The faculty and administration work closely in order to give the 
students a framework within which they can play their roles. The 
faculty serves as teachers, advisers and counselors: prodding, stimulating, 
and encouraging the students. The administration is comparable to the 
management: setting up the necessary stage props and preparing the 
theatre for the daily performances. 

Our choice 

Two popular hostesses 


A pause with the President . . 

The spirit of friendliness and informality exist- 
ing at Simmons begins with the man who has been 
coordinator of administration, faculty and student 
body for twenty years, President Bancroft Beatley. 

The students know him as a fine educator, 
administrator and personal friend. Stu-G Council 
has watched his miniature model railroad speed 
around his basement at home; students have 
laughed over his witticisms at banquets and teas. 
Students saw him make frequent trips to Campus 
in order to study and supervise the construction of 
the three new dormitories and the new dining 
hall. And there isn't a girl in the College who 
hasn't been warmly greeted by him at Simmons 
proms. Known for his witticisms and willingness 
to help in student projects, President Beatley con- 
stantly strives to build a better Simmons. 

Helping to determine College policy and to 
guide student activities is Miss Eleanor Clifton, 
Dean of Simmons. With sincere interest in each 
student, Dean Clifton deals with student welfare 
and hundreds of individual problems. Many are 
the girls who relax in her huge leather chair to 
discuss personal, social, economic and academic 

Dean Clifton's warm smile greets everyone at 
all college socials, whether they be formal dinners, 
Bib Parties or afternoon teas. A welcomed guest 

. . . our Vice-President 

. . . our Dean 

everywhere, Dean Clifton's sense of humor carries 
her through the students' antics and interpreta- 
tions and parodies on the administration and life's 
problems. A dean's work is not the easiest, but 
Dean Clifton's warm sympathy and understanding 
have made her a friend and counselor of all the 

Another key administrator known for his execu- 
tive and teaching ability is Dr. J. Garton Needham, 
Professor of Psychology and Simmons' Vice-Presi- 
dent. His informal classroom approach — seated 
on top of the desk tossing out provocative remarks 
— is characteristic of this lanky man with the pipe. 

Despite a full schedule of administrative and 
teaching duties, Dr. Needham takes a very active 
role in student affairs. A man whose identity, 
someone once wrote, has become Simmons, he is 
constantly setting higher goals and standards for 
Simmons College. 

Dr. Wylie Sypher, Professor of English, Chair- 
man of the Division of Language, Literature and 
the Arts, and Dean of the Graduate Division, has 
become an institution at Simmons. His stimulating 
lectures, provocative remarks, Sypherisms and 
bright red, blue and green ties are known to all. 

Dr. Sypher has won the respect and admiration 
not only of the student body and administration, 
but of the community as well. Whether he is 
delivering a lecture on Shakespeare or talking 
over coffee in the cafeteria, he is always a chal- 
lenging figure. 

and our Dean of the Graduate School. 



One of the most pleasant memories we'll have is the 
warm student-faculty relationship we have enjoyed. At 
first we met the faculty as awesome names with one pur- 
pose: to teach. Soon we discovered enthusiastic and 
understanding friends, counselors and personalities. 

Meeting for classes over coffee in the cafeteria, continu- 
ing a class discussion in the prof's office over a cigarette, 
and striking a Psych prof out on third during a ball game, 
somehow made the process of learning easier.

When faculty and staff get together 



In their offices, along the corridors, these familiar faces 
<vork and plan for the growth of the College. They are 
:he people behind the scenes who are working for today's 
:lasses and planning for those of tomorrow. 

Their dream is one of expanding building facilities, 
:reating endowments for faculty salaries, receiving a 
million dollar contribution to the Alumnae Fund, improv- 
ng the Health Program, newspapers begging for publicity 
releases from the College, and being swamped with place- 
ments for Simmons girls. 



Student Government is the tool by which the 
student is able to carve much of her life at 
Simmons. Stu-G affects not only the social and 
extra-curricular life, but also the academic. 

Student Council is the main executive body for 
college affairs. The officers of Council head the 
subcommittees, Dorm Board, Honor Board and 
Social Activities. Dorm Board is the judiciary 
committee handling campus affairs. The Honor 
System is administered by Honor Board, and 
Social Activities Committee coordinates all so- 
cial functions.

Science . 

The words "Art, Science and Industry" on our college 
seal are more than simply a part of its design. They 
represent the concept of education upon which Simmons 
College has built its curriculum. The purpose of its eight 
schools is to combine instruction in liberal arts with a 
sound professional background — a combination which 
ideally suits the need of the young women who recognize 
the value of a practical as well as a liberal arts education 
in the competitive world in which we must live and work 



Accountant, Medica 

School of Business 

jcretary, Office Manager, Personnel Director 

In the mysterious business machines room which 
houses such mechanical phenomena as the ediphone, 
soundscriber, and fluid duplicator, or in the cloistered 
business library, the Simmons business major personi- 
fies efficiency and initiative. The awesome sounding 
"business world" is the challenging goal towards 
which the business major prepares with a well- 
balanced curriculum of academic and professional 

For the girl who has made up her mind to a special- 
ized field, training is available in accounting, adver- 
tising, personnel, medical records, secretarial and 
administration programs. The bi-lingual program is 
available to girls who prefer their shorthand flavored 
with another language, and desire work in consular 
offices or foreign trade. The general business program 
enrolls girls who do not wish to specialize but whose 
flexible interests may lead them to a variety of busi- 
ness, professional, governmental, and school positions. 

Shorthand pads, erasers, carbons, and stencils are 
all a necessary part of the business student's standard 
equipment. Pride is taken in the impressive equip- 
ment of the shorthand and typing classrooms, where 
intense practical experience is gained. Business 3 1 and 
41 offer systematic practice and drill in writing short- 
hand and developing typing speed. Eventually, the 
facility in these basic skills needed to meet high 
business standards are acquired. Mrs. Helen Adams, 
Mrs. Tilly Dickinson, and Mr. Edward Byers succeed 
in convincing the students that the Gregg way is the 
best way in spite of many students' insistence that 
their original shorthand characters are easier to write. 
These basic skill courses are supplemented by Secre- 
tarial Procedures. In this course, common problems 
encountered by the secretary in the performance of 
her daily work are studied by means of class discus- 
sions, demonstrations, and outside reading. 

Contracts, sales, negotiable papers, common car- 
riers, insurance, and corporations, all become intimate 
institutions to the business student whose curiosity for 

legal principles has inspired her to take the Business 
Law course offered by a practicing lawyer, Miss 
Helena O'Brien. The principles learned in this course 
have high personal-use value as well as application to 
ordinary business situations. 

A business student with a well-balanced personal 
budget is probably indebted to Personal Finance 
taught by Mrs. Isabella Coulter. This non-technical 
course is designed to give students practical help in 
managing personal money matters. Mrs. Coulter also 
introduces business to the entering business major in 
a broad survey course covering the major area and 
function of business enterprise. Students again meet 
Mrs. Coulter in the advertising courses where they 
are impressed with her dynamic explanation of agate 
lines, lithography, photoengraving, and ad campaigns. 

Miss Clare Sweeney holds the key to the successful 
manipulation of the highly valued business machines. 
It is from her that students gain the principles of 
transcribing, calculating, and duplicating. 

As Miss Viola Engler and every student taking her 
accounting course will tell you, "every debit must 
have a credit." Balancing books becomes second 
nature to accounting majors. 

Students enrolled in the medical records program 
are sometimes mistaken for science majors. Medical 
terminology and fundamentals of medical science are 
an essential part of her highly specialized training. 

The business major carries her efficiency and initia- 
tive into classrooms other than Room 117, 119, or 
129. She is as interested in her philosophy or literature 
course as she is in office management, realizing that 
professional training loses its significance without a 
broad general education. 

The annual Business Banquet given by the school's 
instructors for the students typifies the friendly rela- 
tionship that is established between faculty and 
students. And always, whether needed in his capacity 
as instructor, friend, or counselor, is the director of 
the School, Mr. Paul L. Salsgiver.

The programs offered by the School of Home Eco- 
nomics give a student not only a professional educa- 
tion as a Home Economist but also a sound general 
education. Although the students in Home Economics 
are given a wide variety of courses, there are three 
main areas of specialization — Home Economics 
Education, Textiles, and Institutional Management. 

Regardless of the final aim of the student, the 
sophomore year consists of certain basic courses taken 
by all Home Ec majors, among which is a basic food 
course — Foods and Nutrition, taught by Miss Nellie 
Hord and Miss Bernice Lothrop. In this course the 
students learn to plan, prepare, and serve well-bal- 
anced family meals. Other fundamental courses are 
Design, a basic course in line, form and color given 
by Mr. Harold Lindergreen, and the popular Clothing 
Twenty given by Miss Alice Gallivan for girls inter- 
ested in textiles and education. Textiles, a study of 
textile fibers is offered by Mrs. Eleanor Gawne. These 
courses are also taken by many students not in the 
School of Home Economics. 

During the junior year, all Home Economics stu- 
dents are required to spend eight weeks in the Home 
Management House. Living there provides experience 
in family living and home-making. The girls take 
turns being manager, cook, housekeeper and the other 
jobs that are a part of home-making. The home- 
cooked meals prepared every night are especially 
relished by the girls who live on campus. The course 
is called Home Management and Family Relations, 
and includes lectures on equipment, practical home- 
making, marriage, and family living. The lectures are 
presented by Miss Bernice Lothrop and Mrs. Eleanor 
Gawne. In the same semester Child Development 
with Mrs. Dorothy Minville is taken. This course 
includes a study of the development of the child up 
to six years of age. Practical experience with children 

is gained from participation by the students in the 
college nursery school and other nursery schools in 
the community. 

With the junior and senior years comes specializa- 
tion in the various fields. The Institutional Manage- 
ment girls take Advanced Foods with Miss Lucy 
Fisher and Miss Nellie Hord. This is a study of food 
composition, methods of manufacture, marketing, 
and food preservation. They also take Nutrition with 
Miss Elda Robb and various other subjects including 
Bacteriology, Physiology, and Accounting. Senior year 
brings Institutional Management with Mrs. Quindara 
Dodge and includes field trips and actual participa- 
tion in large scale feeding. The seniors also take Nutri- 
tion and Diet Therapy given by Mrs. Diana Abbot. 

The girls majoring in education take Dress-design- 
ing and Construction, a course where they design 
their personal basic pattern, and Field Experience in 
Home Economics Education with Mrs. Ruth Khiralla. 
The students receive experience in this course by 
teaching a class in foods or clothing in a settlement 
house in the vicinity of Boston. The seniors also do 
actual teaching in Home Economics with Mrs. Eleanor 
Gawne and develop skill and ability in demonstrating 
in Demonstration Methods. Consumer Education a 
study of the everyday problems facing the individual 
in the selection and use of consumer goods is also taken 
with Miss Bernice Lothrop. 

Textile majors take Textile Microscopy and Tech- 
nology, and Advanced Textile Technology. They also 
have a wide background of mathematics and sciences. 

Students may further their interests in these fields by 
electing other courses such as Tailoring, Experimental 
Foods, House Planning, and Interior Decoration, or 
Public Health. Field Experience is planned to give 
students advanced work in their areas of specialization.

School of Library Science 

brarian, Law Specialist, Reference Librarian 

You don't judge a book by its cover as any librarian 
will tell you. Consider its scope, authority, up-to-date- 
ness, publisher, and method of treatment. These are 
vital terms to the students enrolled in the School of 
Library Science and imply more than an intellectual 
interest in books. 

Fundamentally, the librarian works with books 
and related material which covers every subject. A 
general education is, therefore, the essence on which 
the 4-year Simmons program is planned. Technical 
skill and practical knowledge complement a firm 
foundation in liberal education. 

Librarians groomed by Simmons replace the con- 
ventional ivory-tower characteristic of librarians with 
a new emphasis on dynamism. Libraries are con- 
sidered social institutions, attaining a new significance. 
No longer can a librarian be a depository or dispenser 
of knowledge. The librarian's primary concern is the 
guidance of people. He becomes in effect a mediator 
between people and books. He must have the ability 
to judge books in terms of the numbers of the individ- 
uals who use them and have the enthusiasm and 
desire to reach readers. 

A closely integrated program prepares the Simmons 
student for librarianship. Papyrus rolls and clay tab- 
lets become intimate facts of knowledge in Mr. James 
Boudreau's Introduction to Librarianship course, re- 
quired of all seniors. The societal function of libraries 
at various periods in history is studied with emphasis 
on the contemporary American library, its ideals, 
personnel, and services. This course also includes 
presentations by visiting lecturers and field trips to 
typical libraries in the Boston area. 

Practical applications of the principles involved is 
experienced with Miss Ruth Leonard's Cataloguing 
and Classification. This factual and time consuming 
course is rendered lighter by Miss Leonard's sprightly 
''cornsot" and "gravestone hunting" divergencies. 

Book Selection taught by Miss Sigrid Edge gives 

the library science student a basis for guiding adult 
and children readership. 

The aesthetic appreciation of books is taught by our 
own Walt Whitman expert and rare book collector, 
Mr. Rollo Silver. 

If there are blisters on the fingers of any of our 
girls, it's probably the result of Miss Mary Kinney's 
Reference course. C.B.I., P.T.L.A., S.T.C., hold the 
answers to questions like "Who was the first woman 
who ran for president?" or "What is the significance 
of the third passing of a bill in Congress?" 

When a library science student tucks Peter Grime's 
Fairytales or Heidi under his arm he's not regressing 
or taking the book home for baby sister. It's all part 
of the Children's Books course taught by Mrs. Ruth 
Viguers. This course aims to develop criterion for the 
selection of books for boys and girls through the 
reader's interest, habits, and abilities. 

The broad scope of opportunities in the library 
science profession is constantly expanding. Interests 
range from scholarship to administration, adult edu- 
cation to research specialists. You can work exclusively 
with children or exclusively with adults. A Braille li- 
brarian forms an important function in large com- 
munities. For the travel minded librarians, there are 
opportunities in bookmobile work. In a specialized 
or general field, the library science student is con- 
tinually given the growing importance of public 

Throughout the four-year program at Simmons, 
the library science student gains professional confi- 
dence imbued from the friendly guidance and under- 
standing of the school's director, Mr. Kenneth Shaf- 
fer, and the solicitation of the school's instructors. 
Whether discussing the "Dewey decimal classifica- 
tion" with Miss Leonard or whether "Whitman's 
Leaves of Grass has form" with Mr. Silver, the 
student-faculty relationship for the class of '54 ends 
in friendship. 

The first summer 

Director, Mrs. Evangeline H. Morris 

Floor Supervisor, Surgical' 

Month by month, semester by semester comes a 
host of new and wonderful changes from Simmons 
School of Nursing — constant improvements to co- 
ordinate the collegiate and clinical phases of the 5- 
year program — improvements to make the program 
more enjoyable — to develop the student as an 
individual and as a professional nurse, who through 
her awareness of professional and personal respon- 
sibilities, will be able to make real contributions to the 
needs of our changing society. Simmons develops this 
social consciousness and sound professional attitudes 
and competencies in nursing by providing a broad 
scientific, academic, and professional foundation. 

After the first year, the student follows a specific 
plan of work preparing for her professional objective. 
The first semester of the second year includes such 
courses as General Chemistry; a Liberal Arts elective, 
perhaps English 37 or a History course, two of the 
more popular nursing electives; and Introduction to 
Nursing, a required course in which a background of 
information on the scope of nursing is presented to 
amplify and broaden the student's preconception of 
the field she has chosen. 

Formal class sessions are kept to a minimum and 
the majority of time is spent in hospital orientation 
in studying the community from which the hospital 
draws its patients, in discussions with those individuals 
whose disciplines make them part of the "health 
team," and in acquiring some basic nursing skills in 
an actual clinical situation. 

The second semester follows with the continuation 
of General Chemistry and Introduction of Nursing, 
Bacteriology, Food Preparation, and a study of Nutri- 
tion, with a consequent gain of insight into the types 
of nutrition problems with which a nurse may come 
in contact in her professional work, and an academic 

After a short vacation, second semester is followed 

by an eight-week summer session conducted at the 
Massachusetts General Hospital, which continues the 
orientation process. All the students live in Arnold 
Hall where — "after all is said and done" — a very 
enjoyable and extremely valuable summer is spent, 
working, studying, and playing. 

Enthusiastically, these same students return to 
Simmons for a third year to pursue Physics, Philoso- 
phy, Sociology and the Control of Communicable 
Disease, and later on, Physiology, Child Development, 
two nursing education courses: Principles and Meth- 
ods of Teaching and Professional Adjustments, 
another elective, and Introduction to Pathology. 
These latter courses are taken at the Massachusetts 
General Hospital. 

Three years quickly "fly by." The student leaves 
the college building and becomes an integral part 
of the Massachusetts General Hospital where she 
receives two full years of clinical instruction and prac- 
tice geared to the maturity and capacity of the col- 
lege student. In general, the first year of hospital 
work includes experience in medical nursing, surgical 
nursing, out-patient nursing, operating-room tech- 
nique, dietetics, neurological and orthopedic nursing, 
and allied theoretical instruction. The second year 
offers experience with related instruction in pediatrics 
at the Children's Medical Center, obstetrics at Boston 
Lying-in Hospital, psychiatry at McLean Hospital, 
in surgical specialties and in public health. 

In order to complete this extensive program, a 
prospective nurse must take, at all times, a "long- 
range view," never losing sight of her goal. Perhaps 
many more would "fall by the wayside" were it not 
for the understanding guidance, encouragement, and 
intense interest in each one of us, not only as a 
potential Simmons nurse but also as a distinct and 
growing personality, that we receive — for this, we 
are deeply grateful !

Prince School of Retailing 

ector, Designers, Training Supervisor 

Ivy-covered brownstone walls house the Prince 
School of Retailing, one of the younger members of 
the Simmons' family. Here the students learn how 
to make shopping easier and more pleasant for all 
of us. The classrooms are quite unusual, being 
equipped with fireplace, interesting names rather than 
numbers, and clocks whose chimes ring out only 
when guest speakers appear on the scene. In addition 
the school is comfortably furnished with a kitchen, 
library, and lounge. 

The freshman and sophomore years of the Prince 
School girls are spent taking classes at 300 the Fen- 
way. But with the coming of their junior year they 
join the seniors in taxiing down to 49 Commonwealth 
Avenue for their classes. The most famous milestone 
of the junior year is the making of one of the noto- 
rious "color manuals," a textbook on color. 

Comes November of the senior year and the envied 
field work period begins. Good pay and an executive 
position compensate for the six-day week, the incon- 
venience of moving from dorm to dorm and back 
again during vacations, and the aching feet. The 
seniors have a pretty full and interesting year. A 
fashion show is produced and directed by them alone 
and a full and exciting week is had in New York 
City on their annual market trip. Field trips on and 
around the city of Boston add interest to the regular 
curriculum offered. 

In these two years at the downtown Prince School 
the students become well acquainted with their in- 
structors. Mr. Donald Beckley directs the school with 

more wit and charm than a copy of PUNCH. Miss 
Priscilla Grindell and Miss Irene Donohue keep things 
running smoothly and prevent such minor calamities 
as overlapping appointments and disagreeing clocks. 
Miss Jessie Stuart first introduces the juniors to color, 
line, and textiles, then as seniors she introduces fash- 
ions to them in a commercial sense. Mrs. Barbara 
Haley gives the girls information en personnel and 
merchandising while Mr. David Blakeslee conducts 
classes in store operation and salesmanship. Mrs. 
Isabella Coulter comes up from the main college 
building to teach sales promotion and Mr. H. Clifford 
Beane takes time out from the personnel department 
at Filene's to teach labor relations. In 1953 Miss Irene 
Chambers, who had been with the School for some 
time, retired. A Prince girl may not be a whiz at 
mathematics, but she certainly knew her debits and 
credits after a semester with Miss Irene Chambers. 

When the application forms have been filled out. 
when the interviews are over, when final exams have 
been taken, and the diplomas have been placed in 
their hands, the Prince girls stand on the threshold 
of their careers. Many of them go into the field of 
merchandising, others select personnel work as their 
profession, still others become experts in the field of 
advertising or sales promotion. 

Though the majority of Prince girls do enter jobs 
in retailing, some take positions with manufacturers, 
wholesalers, and certain branches of work with the 
airlines and the telephone companies. 

Director, Mr. Raymond F. Bosworth 

Book Desigm 

If the independent livelihood you aim at is in the 
advertising, writing, or publishing worlds, the School 
of Publication is your bread and meat — or maybe 
even your champagne and caviar in years to come. 
However, the faculty hints that this is only an idle 
undergraduate dream. ( 

Whatever place the Publication graduate finds for 
herself in The Field, she is equipped with a broad 
knowledge of picas, points, and the practical know- 
how of the publishing world. Three years in the Gay 
Room, the Printshop, the Pub library and a variety 
of liberal arts classes mold a graduate who has had 
a long look into both the aesthetic and the practical. 

The School, only several years younger than its '54 
graduates, was started in 1934 by Dr. Robert Gay, 
whose essays, appropriately enough, were the first 
"real" book printed in the Simmons Printshop. The 
old School of English has changed her name and her 
director, but follows Dr. Gay's plan of what women 
in publishing should learn in class. 

Mr. Raymond Bosworth directs the School's activi- 
ties — and hardly ever strays from his blue office 
just off the main artery. He teaches a class in copy 
editing and edits and gives advice on those 20,000 
words they grind out in Advanced Comp. Must be 
good advice too, for some prizes in national competi- 
tions have come out of those conferences. 

"Informality" is the keynote around Boz's School. 
Coffee with Miss Williams in Review class, a cigarette 
in Printshop while you're manning the 12 point 
Garamond, or both in Fez's Publicity class in the 
Lunchroom. Pix and cuts are easier to understand 
when you are on an across-a-cup-of-coffee basis with 
the instructor. 

There is a lot to understand about this publishing 
business too. The Chicago Manual of Style introduces 

the juniors to accuracy; work on the Review the next 
year shows how important it is on a real magazine. 
Journalism teaches the Fessenden Formula with Fez's 
own practical editor's eye view. 

Cropping, copyfitting, Benday, and the economical 
way of doing things are fired at you in Mr. Valz's 
machine gun style. Graphic Arts is Valz, and Valz 
helps his students acquire a professional outlook on 
the publishing and production processes. If a designer 
at D. C. Heath knows to leave }/& inch for the "bleed" 
it's probably because Mr. Valz taught her to in those 
Thursday morning classes. 

The "golden mean", how to manage a T-square, 
and the principles of good design are revealed by 
Mr. Turner. Tracing paper, india ink, and an eye 
for arranging elements artistically on a page are a

Ginny Bratton watches over the Printshop and all 
the printers' devils therein. Composing sticks and 
3-em spaces are her stock-in-trade. In Printshop a 
girl goes through all the steps of printing a book. The 
hours of work and the weeks when the ink won't 
come off her hands are worth it when the book is 
finished — set, printed, bound and all hers. 

Besides the basic studies of halftones, stereos, and 
bleeds, the Pub girl can learn about specific areas of 
the publishing world. Publicity opens the door to the 
public relations field. Children's Books provides an 
insight into the reading interests of children. The 
advertising business gets closer inspection in Advertis- 
ing Copy Writing. 

There are things the Publication graduate won't 
forget: points, picas, square-ups . . . they'd better not 
. . . the wonderfully pleasant preview of professional- 
ism seen through the School. That she will appreciate 
long after the mortarboard goes into mothballs.

With test tubes, white jackets, and balancing 
scales, aspiring Einsteins or Madame Curies find 
ample outlets for their scientific curiosity and experi- 
mentation in the Simmons School of Science. 

Located on the second floor and part of the first, 
the Science School can boast of being the school with 
the most identifying pungent smells. 

Those students interested in science as a major 
usually begin by taking such courses as Chem 10 and 
Math 10 in their freshman year. By doing this they 
learn whether their interest is deep enough to last 
the long period of studying that is ahead for them. 

The science students are traditionally known as 
being the most hard working, spending eighteen or 
twenty hours in lab each week. 

As far as other students can tell, they spend most 
of their time in Chem lab, Physics lab or Biology 
lab, pouring over their experiments. 

Future chemists have a steady diet of organic, 
inorganic, food and physical chem plus physics, Ger- 
man, calculus and on to infinity. Many after gradua- 
tion go on to graduate school for a year to become 
teachers while others enter industry with terrific jobs 
and salaries. For them the long hard grind is worth it. 

No one need tell you where the Biology depart- 
ment is. Just follow your nose. Cats in formaldehyde, 
skeletons and bacteria specimens are all part of the 
equipment in the biology labs. Here the students 
learn anatomy, bacteriology and physiology. Some 
combine their interests in biology and chemistry, 
becoming bio-chemists. 

There is little need for the science major to 
worry about getting good positions. The last war and 
the present draft have made the demand for women 
scientists greater than it has ever been before. 

This is especially true of physics majors. In fact, 
Simmons always has. more calls for woman physicists 
than it has students to fill them. The girls majoring 
in physics must have a liking for mathematics, since 
it and physics go hand in hand. This perhaps is the 
reason why few girls dare major in physics. During 
their years at Simmons they take such courses as 
Electricity and Magnetism, Electronics, Spectroscopy, 
Mechanics and Photography. 

Two relatively new departments in the School of 
Science are Physical Therapy and Orthoptics. For her 
first four years at Simmons the majors in physical 
therapy combine a variety of science courses and 
liberal arts courses. They also learn how to lead 
others in different sports and how to first become 
an excellent swimmer and then a swimming instruc- 
tor. At last in their fifth year they specialize at 
nearby hospitals putting to practice what they learned 
at Simmons and learning other things by being out 
on the job. From here the graduates enter army 
hospitals helping to rehabilitate the bodies of wound- 
ed soldiers. Many enter hospitals where the concern is 
primarily rehabilitating the deformed and weak 
bodies of youngsters. For them this work is truly 

Orthoptics is a course offered to those students 
who want a solid professional training to assist an 
oculist and physiotherapist. These first three years 
are spent at Simmons taking courses in physics, 
biology, anatomy, etc. In their last year they go to 
lectures at the Harvard Medical School and receive 
actual on-the-job experience at affiliating hospitals. 

There are just so many fields which the School 
of Science offers that anyone with interest in science 
can find his own niche. 

Community Planner, 

Several years ago, Mr. Welfling was asked by 
President Beatley to investigate and report on the 
part that the Division of Social Studies has played at 
Simmons. After a study was made of programs at 
other colleges as well as of employment opportunities 
in fields related to the Social Sciences, there was no 
doubt that an emphasis on this lucrative field would 
not be misplaced here at Simmons. 

The administration started planning programs 
based on social studies. Since the existing School of 
Preprofessional Studies served mainly to prepare stu- 
dents for graduate study in Social Work, it seemed 
quite practical to combine this program with those 
of the new school. 

The new School of Social Science is the answer 
to the prayers of many a Simmons student. Here, 
finally, is a haven for those of us whose interests lie 
in social studies. No longer must we feel inferior to 
our sisters who graduated with the security of a 
profession at their finger tips. We, too, are prepared. 
Schools of graduate study will welcome us, and our 
courses now provide a background for immediate 
employment in areas where knowledge of the social 
sciences is indispensable. 

Five new areas of concentration are clearly defined 
in our new school. For aspiring politicians (There 
may even be a budding president amongst us!) the 
course in Public Administration is a stepping stone to 
employment in Federal, state, and local government. 
For those who'd like some tips on how to play the 
stock market the course in Economic Analysis is ideal. 
It also provides preparation for jobs in government, 
financial institutions, and industry, involving analy- 
tical work of an economic nature. Those students who 

would like to do social work but find graduate school 
impractical will find the course in Community Work 
a sound preparation for government welfare work and 
similar positions for which graduate professional 
training is not required. Psychological Measurements 
provide an extra-special background for positions as 
test technicians in government and testing agencies 
or personnel departments. Although Simmons does 
not offer an education course as such, students who 
wish to teach may enroll in the Pre-Teaching program 
and go on to graduate study at Harvard University 
for a Master of Arts degree. 

The aim and purpose of the new school of Social 
Science were explained by President Beatley as 
follows : 

"Simmons College has long recognized the need 
for a School of Social Science. The purpose of 
the School will be to furnish to our students a 
more significant education for civil responsibili- 
ty; to provide a foundation of the basic back- 
ground concepts on which a sound program of 
graduate education may be built; and to provide 
for those who will not continue their education 
beyond the bachelor's degree, an orientation 
toward employment in areas where the social 
sciences provide the major content and method." 
We the class of '54 have seen the new school in 
operation for only one year, but we feel that with 
Mr. Welfling's capable leadership, it's destined not 
only to accomplish its objectives most admirably, but 
that in time, the achievements of its graduates will 
prove its foundation one of the most rewarding in- 
novations at Simmons.

The expectant looks directed at the post board 
early in the fall mean only one thing — it's time 
for Academy to announce its new members. Acad- 
emy, the official honor society at Simmons, is 
designed to provide an incentive for scholastic 
effort, as well as to grant recognition to students 
of high academic achievement. Beside the little 
gold key available to members, students in Acad- 
emy are privileged to wear the narrow blue and 
gold ribbon on their Academic gowns at Com- 
mencement. To become a member of Academy, 
a student must be in a program of study at Sim- 
mons leading to the Bachelor's degree. Regular 
students who have completed at least two years 
with a quality point average of at least 3.2 and 
transfer students who have completed one year at 
Simmons with a quality point average of at least 
3.3 are eligible for membership. 

The traditional Academy banquet and reception 
were held in Alumnae Hall on November 9. Dr. 
Harrison L. Harley, former director of the School 
of Preprofessional Studies and an emeritus mem- 
ber of Academy, was guest speaker. This year a 
student faculty committee has been appointed to 
study the problems of Academy and to determine 
whether changes would be beneficial. It is an 
honored, growing organization, and is well worth 
working for.

Athletic Association 

The members of the Athletic Association have 
combined lots of excitement with plenty of exer- 
cise in the hockey field, in the gym, and in the 
tennis courts. 

As in the past, "play days" and practice games 
were held with neighboring schools participating. 
Hockey games were played with Wheelock and 
Emmanuel and lots of fun was had afterwards 
with a coke and cookies get-together. A Fall Field 
Day held in October featured a student-faculty 
hockey game. The score 2-0 indicated the good 
team work of the faculty and the seniors. 

This year saw the beginning of inter-dormitory 
basketball games. The opposing teams were each 
headed by a dorm and a commuter. The class 
games were held as usual with the winning team 
having the year of their class placed on the 
Athletic Association Plaque which is given to 
the class winning the interclass competition. 

Spring brought out the tennis players and the 
annual tourney got under way. Towards the end 
of the year, emblems were given to students who 
had compiled the required number of points 
earned by participating in sports.

Anne Strong 

The Ann Strong Club is an organization for the 
Simmons girls enrolled in its five year nursing 
program. Informal social meetings were held each 
month in the evening to enable the members of 
the affiliating hospitals to attend. At these meet- 
ings, guest speakers, told of their varied and 
unusual nursing experiences. 

The club is also the sponsor of many traditional 
activities. Among them is its annual food sale. As 
in previous years, the proceeds from this year's 
sale were used to send delegates to the National 
Convention of Nurses. 

It also sponsored the popular cake baking con- 
test which is open to all the male members of 
the faculty. 

One of its other traditional activities is a fall 
cook out. Again this year everyone had a great 
time cooking and eating. 

In May the club ended its activities for the year 
with an impressive ceremony in which the Gideon 
Society presented the outgoing nurses with their 
white bibles. 

Christian Science 

The Christian Science Organization at Sim- 
mons, one of the oldest in the country, was 
founded in 1912. 

At the weekly meetings testimonies and lessons 
given by the members of the club play an impor- 
tant part in its program. 

In November Dr. Archibald Carey of Detroit, 
Michigan was the guest speaker at the club's an- 
nual fall lecture. 

In the spring the organization gave a reception, 
at which a local speaker connected with the 
Mother Church was featured. The reception was 
then followed by an informal get-together. 

Other activities of the Christian Science Organ- 
ization included visits to the weekly meetings of 
the organization of nearby colleges and to their 
lectures and receptions. One of the nicest tradi- 
tions of the club is its annual dinner at one of 
Boston's better restaurants. This year, as in pre- 
vious years, the food and table conversation were 
fully enjoyed. 

Each member of the Christian Science Organ- 
ization contributed to its activities. This kept it an 
active and worthwhile group.

Eastern Orthodox 

The Simmons Eastern Orthodox Club, organ- 
ized in 1947, is considered one of the most active 
clubs of its kind among the greater Boston colleges. 

Under the guidance of its spiritual advisor, 
Reverend James Coucouzes, Dean of the Greek 
Orthodox Cathedral of New England, the purpose 
of the Club is twofold. One is to unite Simmons 
students of Orthodox faith but of different nation- 
alities. The other is to foster better relations be- 
tween all faiths educationally and socially. 

In April the Greek Orthodox Clubs of greater 
Boston held a conference at Simmons "to 
strengthen our religious ties and to promote the 
ideals of good citizenship." Various New England 
colleges participated in this educational and 
social conference. 

One of the most pleasant traditions of the Club 
is the Mother's Day party held in May and at- 
tended by the members, their mothers and in- 
vited guests. 

Socials were held throughout the school year in 
connection with Orthodox Clubs in neighboring 
men's colleges. Skating and theater parties filled 
out the social calendar. 

Ellen Richards 

The Ellen Richards Club, one of the oldest at 
Simmons, brings together the science students in 
the various fields of Biology, Chemistry, Physics 
and Orthoptics. It also provides an opportunity 
for science students and faculty to meet informally 
at monthly meetings. Featured at these meetings 
were movies and guest speakers, talking on such 
interesting topics as "The Physicist Concept of the 
Creation of the World." 

Among other activities the club held a very 
successful Halloween Dance. A winter weekend 
in New Hampshire gave the members an opportu- 
nity to try their skills at the various winter sports. 

In the spring the club also held a Student- 
Faculty Softball game followed by a barbecue. 

With its members' professional aims in view the 
club also sponsored field trips to industrial and 
research laboratories. The club is also a member 
of the Intercollegiate Chemical Association — an 
organization bringing together students of similar 
interests from twenty colleges and universities in 
the New England area.

The chief purpose of Forum is to integrate and 
strengthen the political, social and cultural inter- 
ests of the students. Through its committees, Social 
Relations, United Nations, and Discussions, Forum 
gives the student an opportunity to express her 
opinions and to learn the views of others. 

The Forum Executive Board, consisting of the 
President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer, 
and committee chairmen is responsible for in- 
tegrating the work of the committees. 

Each committee plans their own program in- 
dividually. The Social Relations Committee has 
an extremely active volunteer service group. This 
year it has also been host to many interesting speak- 
ers who have discussed problems of psychology 
and psychiatry. 

The United Nations Committee has held such 
activities as an International Smorgasbord with 
a guest speaker from India and an old clothes' 
dance for European children. 

The Discussion Group has held informal dis- 
cussions pertaining to current events and other 
subjects of interest to the students. 

Thus, as an all-college organization, Forum at- 
tempts to integrate the "world outside" with 
college activities.

Under the leadership of Mr. Burton A. Cleaves, 
its director, and its officers, the sixty-voiced Sim- 
mons Glee Club has experienced a year full with 
success, enthusiasm and interest. 

The club's theme song, "Marching, Marching 
Onward" has been the opening and closing meloay 
of many Glee Club concerts. Among others, the 
club gave its annual Christmas Concert, and again 
this year presented a concert at the Gardner 
Museum. It also entertained at the Coffee Can- 
tata and the Baccalaureate and Commencement 

During the year, the Glee Club has entertained 
many servicemen in the Massachusetts, New York, 
and New Jersey areas. 

An exciting tour sponsored by the Army is 
planned for June, covering Iceland, the Azores, 
and Bermuda. While on tour, the club will give 
concerts at many Army bases. 

This great honor awarded to the Simmons Glee 
Club will mark the end of a year in which every 
member has contributed to the club's great success. 


The B'nai B'rith Hillel Organization at Sim- 
mons College functions to meet the needs of 
Jewish students culturally, religiously, education- 
ally, and socially. 

Its program includes classes, study groups, guest 
speakers, holiday festival celebrations, Onegai 
Shabat, and social activities. The Simmons Hillel 
group is part of the foundation which includes 
M. I. T., Tufts, and Jackson Colleges under the 
direction of Rabbi Herman Pollack. 

Thursday is Hillel day at Simmons. Classes and 
discussion groups are held all day, and students 
meet informlly with Rabbi Pollack at hours that 
are convenient anytime from first to ninth. The 
many subjects discussed and studied range from 
Elementary Hebrew and Jewish philosophy and 
literature to current Jewish problems. 

The celebration of religious holidays and festi- 
vals is a time when Hillel plays an important part 
in the religious life of students. Student participa- 
tion and attendance at the candle-lighting cere- 
monies held during the Chanukah season as well 
as at the regular, weekly Sabbath services are 
living, beautiful proof that religious consciousness 
is an important and vital part of American col- 
lege life.

Home Economics 

The goal set by the club this year was "to fur- 
ther the professional and the personal interests of 
its members within the field of Home Economics." 

Many varied activities have contributed in re- 
alizing this goal. The first meeting of the year 
featured the presentation of the Borden Award. 
This award is given to the senior in Home Eco- 
nomics who has maintained the highest scholastic 

The popular all-college fashion show was again 
sponsored by the Home Ec Club this year. Cloth- 
ing sent by the Simplicity Pattern Company was 
modeled by the students. 

The club also served as a hostess to the Province 
I workshop meetings and at the annual Christmas 
project meeting, the members made a "Storybook 
Theater" for the Boston Children's Hospital. 

The members of the club participated in a 
silverware survey, thus giving a boost to the 

In May the annual Home Ec Club Banquet 
concluded the club's activities for the year. 


The IVCF chapter on this campus is one of 
nearly 500 groups in the United States and Canada 
formed to aid the college student in applying a 
Christian philosophy to daily life. It is the pur- 
pose of the club to promote a personal religion 
through prayer, Bible study, and fellowship. 

To supplement these practical fundamentals, 
guest speakers including foreign missionaries and 
Divinity School students are invited periodically. 
Evangelistic meetings are scheduled throughout 
the year to provide an opportunity for interested 
non-Christians to hear the Gospel. Workshops 
are planned to discuss and study the doctrinal 
fundamentals of the Christian faith. 

A winter conference held at Farrington Memo- 
rial in Lincoln, Massachusetts highlighted the 
year's activities. The conference began on Friday 
and ended on a Sunday afternoon. The speakers 
included IVCF staff members Miss Jane Hollings- 
worth and Mr. Peter Haile. Considerable free 
time was planned for relaxation, discussion, and

Le Cercle Francais 

The French Club attracts students interested in 
the French language and the customs of France. 
Knowledge of the language is not necessary for 
admittance to the Club. 

Enthusiasm is the outstanding characteristic 
of this organization, and the gaiety of Paris comes 
to Simmons when the Club sponsors social func- 

Since the members are most interested in first 
hand information of France, they are given many 
opportunities to meet French people by attend- 
ing the activities of the French Center in Boston. 
Each year representatives are sent to a cocktail 
party sponsored by the French Consulate in 

The meetings and entertainments held through- 
out the year include dances in conjunction with 
other colleges, French films and records, and 
speakers on the various aspects of French culture. 
French exchange students are invited to attend 
Club meetings and to lead discussions on social, 
political, and economic problems of France. Such 
activities serve as valuable stimulants toward 
student interest.

Newman Club 

The Newman Club is a national organization 
of Catholic students in non-sectarian colleges. The 
Simmons group is a member of the New England 
Province and the National Newman Club. 

The purpose of the Simmons Newman Club is 
intellectual, spiritual, and social. Speakers address 
the club on philosophy and theology, giving the 
members background in order to understand such 
writers as Nietzsche, Gide, and Kafka. Lectures 
are also given on church history, art, and subjects 
strengthening the students' knowledge of the 
Roman Catholic Church. 

To meet the students' spiritual needs, the Rosary 
and Benediction are said every third Tuesday at 
the Emmanuel Chapel, and Mass is said there each 
morning. Retreats are also conducted throughout 
the year. 

Dances in conjunction with other colleges, com- 
munion breakfasts, and teas are a few of the 
social activities of the club. Every Sunday evening 
open house is held at the Newman Center in Bos- 
ton, where members of all religions are welcomed.

The National Student Association is an organ- 
ization of college governments throughout the 
country working together to better the conditions 
of student life everywhere. Every student at 
Simmons is an automatic member of N. S. A. 
upon registration. 

Representatives from Simmons are sent to the 
national, regional, and area conferences where 
they exchange ideas with students from other 
colleges. One of the main activites of N. S. A. this 
.year was endorsing the Multer Bill in conjunction 
with other colleges. This bill was designed to allow 
a deduction in the income taxes of parents with 
a dependent in college. N. S. A. supervised the 
sending of letters to congressmen requesting their 
cooperation in the passage of this bill. 

Another function of this association is its close 
connection with the International Student Center 
in Cambridge. The aim of this activity is to par- 
ticipate in the orientation of foreign students and 
to help them adjust to the life in this country.

Outing Club 

For those who like their outdoor activities com- 
bined with friendship and fun, the Outing Club 
offers just what they are looking for. Throughout 
the year there are joint meetings with clubs from 
other colleges in the Boston area. Almost all the 
activities of the Outing Club are shared with these 
organizations, so that the members from different 
colleges have a chance to become acquainted. 

This year for the first time in quite a while, 
Simmons Outing Club sponsored two weekends. 
In November an overnight hiking trip to Mt. 
Chocorua in New Hampshire was supervised en- 
tirely by the Simmons Outing Club. In March 
lots of fun was had at a Winter Weekend spent 
at Intervale, New Hampshire. All the winter sports 
were given a try. 

In addition to these activities, films are shown 
at meetings to acquaint the members with the 
proper methods and techniques of different sports.

020, the club for the Library Science majors, 
provides an opportunity for undergraduates to 
meet their faculty and fellow students while learn- 
ing more about their field. 

Since 020 is the Dewey Classification designa- 
tion for books on library science, the students in the 
School of Library Science chose 020 for the name 
of their club. 

Under the guidance of an active executive board 
and Miss Sigrid Edge, the club has had a successful 
and enthusiastic year. Informal teas were held 
monthly with guest speakers presenting talks on 
various aspects of library service and related sub- 
jects. Most memorable was a discussion of public 
censorship led by a prominent Boston lawyer. 

One of the activities which 020 sponsored this 
year was a Christmas party for faculty and stu- 
dents, complete with Santa Claus and caroling. 
The club also directed an all-campus square dance, 
and then wound up its activities with its annual 
May picnic.

Physical Therapy 

The Physical Therapy Club, in only its second 
year, has done much to fulfill its purpose to arouse 
the interest of the student body in physical therapy. 

Since membership in the club is limited to physi- 
cal therapy students, a new program was planned 
to encourage freshmen to attend the meetings, so 
that they could gain a better perspective of the 
main goal of the Physical Therapy Club. This 
goal is the satisfactory rehabilitation and adjust- 
ment of a patient after physical or mental injury. 

Some very interesting activities took place 
throughout the year which enabled members and 
freshmen to become acquainted with the various 
aspects of physical therapy. Meetings were held 
once a month, at which guest speakers spoke on 
the many interesting fields of physical therapy. 

Later in the year, some members traveled to 
New York City to attend a Tri-State Physical 
Therapy Conference in conjunction with New 
York University.

Prince Club 

The Prince Club gives its members, the juniors, 
seniors, and graduate students in the Prince School 
of Retailing, a chance to discuss together the 
development and the opportunities in the mer- 
chandising field. 

The year's activities of the club included a tea- 
dance with the Harvard Business School and a 
farewell coffee hour for seniors and graduate 
students before they left for their field work assign- 
ments. A welcome-home breakfast held the morn- 
ing of the girls' return gave them an opportunity 
to relate their varied experiences and newly ac- 
quired wisdom to the juniors. 

The Prince Club also sponsored a coffee hour 
every Wednesday morning. These morning get- 
togethers gave the members an opportunity to 
meet informally with the faculty and other mem- 
bers of the School. They also serve to unite students 
and faculty in a common bond of interest in the 
retailing field. Mr. David Blakeslee, Associate 
Professor of Retailing, is the club's advisor.

Riding Club 

For the girls to whom English saddles and 
Pelham bridles are more than idle terms, riding 
becomes more than recreation. It is a rugged sport 
demanding a highly developed form which ap- 
proaches but never attains perfection. Members 
of the club know well what Mr. Wright means 
when he yells across the ring, "Ride that horse, 
don't just sit on him." 

The club's purpose is to encourage sportsman- 
ship and skill from the beginner's posting to the 
advanced rider's jumping, as well as to provide 
an opportunity Tor healthful exercise and just 
plain fun. 

A snowstorm did not deter our riding enthusi- 
asts from finding their way to the Wright Stables 
in Jamaica Plain to participate in an interclass 
riding meet held in January. Prizes were awarded 
to the beginner, intermediate, and advance groups, 
and the meet ended informally with potato racing 
and musical chairs. This experience was a great 
aid to the girls in the final spring meet in which 
they competed, winning their share of blue rib- 
bons, with girls from Radcliffe, Wellesley, and 

Sock and Buskin 

A new activity was added to the agenda of the 
Sock and Buskin Society, the drama club at Sim- 
mons. Each month the members of the Sock and 
Buskin Club were given the opportunity to appear 
on radio shows over the M. I. T. radio station, 

Together with Stu-G, Sock and Buskin spon- 
sored the Inter-class Competitives which was 
the first feature of the Christmas Formal weekend. 
The four classes presented skits, each intent on 
taking top honors. Orchids and an oscar were 
awarded to the freshmen for their winning comedy. 

Sock and Buskin also sponsored a spring pro- 
duction in March which featured not only the 
Simmons players but also representatives from 
many surrounding men's colleges. 

Because the Society carries on so many activities 
such as backstage work, publicity, ticket selling, 
and planning social activities, it is not important 
that every member has dramatic ability. However, 
those members who show promising dramatic 
talent are given, through Sock and Buskin, an 
opportunity to work in summer stock.

Student Christian 

A part of a national and international Christian 
movement, the Student Christian Association 
strives to unite all student Christian organizations 
throughout the world, and to promote mutual 
relations among them. The guidance of fellow 
members and the Club's chaplain, Dr. Frederic 
C. Lawrence of St. Paul's Church in Brookline, 
aids in the development of the student's spiritual 
and intellectual lives. 

The Club's goal is "worship, study, and action." 
Many service projects were sponsored throughout 
the year including projects in nearby hospitals 
and settlement houses. Volunteer Service work is 
encouraged. The Club also aided in the sponsor- 
ship of the annual all-college fund drive held 
in February. 

On the international level, the Club contributes 
to the relief of war-ravaged countries, and co- 
sponsors international student relief. 

Informal teas which featured many interesting 
guest speakers, discussions on all aspects of daily 
life supplemented by movies, and get-togethers 
with Christian groups from other colleges were all 
included in the Club's calendar. 


The Y. W. C. A. is a group of Simmons stu- 
dents mainly engaged in social work. The organ- 
ization's forty-seven members aim at promoting 
good will and harmony in college life and out- 
side activities. 

This year the activities started off with a huge 
hot dog and coke party in the college backyard. 

Some of the projects included chocolate parties 
for settlement house children. In December the 
Christmas spirit was shown by filling stockings 
for children and caroling at an old folks home. 

There were also many interesting and informa- 
tive meetings during the year. A discussion on 
"The Ideal Woman" was held in which college 
men voiced their opinion on this subject. 

Throughout the year members of the Simmons 
"Y" take advantage of the many activities of the 
Boston Y. W. C. A. They are well-known for their 
inexpensive hot dog and hot fudge sundae dinners. 
They also hold parties there, and sponsor dances 
with neighboring men's colleges.

Modern Dance 

Modern Dance Club was established to promote 
and stimulate interest in Modern Dance through 
performances given to students and friends of 
Simmons College. It also gives its members an 
opportunity to experience creative activity, and 
provides opportunity for greater technical skill 
to students interested in Dance. 

The Intercollegiate Dance League was estab- 
lished this year, with our president as head. Master 
classes and symposiums were held with other 
college dance groups throughout the year. 

Dance Club has joined with other clubs in 
Simmons to present co-ordinated programs, has 
entertained at various school functions, and has 
presented movies for the student body. 

The spring television program was one of the 
highlights of the year, as Simmons Modern Dance 
Club performed on television for the first time. 

The spring program, the focal point of the 
entire year's work, was larger than ever this year, 
with enormous variations in the types of dance 
presented. The club proved equally adept at its 
renditions of folk ballads, jazz numbers and prim- 
itive and oriental dances. 


Organized during World War II by Cynthia 
Crowe, '44, to entertain at Simmons dances, the 
Bluettes have become the favorite singing group 
of Simmons and other campuses in and around 

This hard-working group enjoys singing for its 
own sake and wants to share this enjoyment with 
others. They never charge for their services, a 
major consideration when it comes to planning 
entertainment at a dance. 

A wide repertoire includes such favorites as 
their theme song, "The Moon," and "Boston 
Beguine." Many of the original arrangements done 
by Sammy Lowe, a pianist who was very interested 
in the group during its infancy, are still retained 
in the usual program. 

Simmons girls look forward to hearing this 
group at their proms, informal dances and at 
step-singing. In between Simmons functions, the 
Bluettes accept some of the many invitations to 
sing at M. I. T. and Tufts. They are a particular 
favorite at the Harvard Grad Schools. This year's 
activities has also included guest appearances on 
station WMIT.

The song began and although there were many 
moments when MIC seemed destined to be an- 
other Unfinished Symphony, the song ended. 
From the confusion of copy, layout, and ads the 
final product emerged. 

We acknowledge our debt to Mr. Valz, tech- 
nical advisor, and to every morale and material 
contributor to the book's success. It is published 
by the Senior Class and dedicated to all interested 
in a pictorial record of the Simmons year, 1954. 

It was a laboratory, teacher, personal achieve- 
ment and satisfying experience for us who labored 
all for the love of MIC. 


Editorial review 

"All the news that fits four pages." If News had a 
slogan, that would be it although the editors sometimes 
fear it's only going to fit three. 

Simmons NEWS, the official school paper listens and 
records the gripes, the ecstacies of the student body and 
serves as the meeting ground for student and faculty 

In the best journalistic tradition, the staff posting and 
interviewing from Thursday 'til Monday sees to it that 
the news front is covered. 

Deadline Day had its headaches. The '54 staff leaves 
. . . but not without regrets.

Simmons REVIEW 

A semester on the Review staff is comparable to several 
months in the professional field is the School of Publica- 
tion's boast. A required course for seniors, the Simmons 
Review is not only a publishing laboratory but also the 
alumnae magazine. 

Each girl is responsible for two articles a semester which 
she must write, edit, proofread, publicize and sell. Among 
frenzied cries for rubber cement, page galleys, and cap- 
tions, Miss Dorothy Williams, editor and chief consultant, 
serves coffee and cookies and shows her girls that produc- 
ing a magazine can be fun. 

Practical experience served with coffee and cookies is Publication's Senior 
Laboratory and Simmons College Review.

Father Time is a crafty man and he's set in his ways, 
And we know that we never can make him 
bring back past days . . . 

Almost three hundred freshmen with overconfident faces whizzed through 
a week of Orientation and decided that Simmons was "great fun." Classes 
started and fun seemed to stop while the class became adjusted to new 
study habits, courses and professors. They were taken to dinner by their 
junior sisters, relaxed at the Bib Party, and dated all the boys they met at 
the Acquaintance Dance at Boys' Latin School. The freshmen found them- 
selves on a merry-go-round that never seemed to slow down. Dawn 
Anderson, as president of the freshmen, led the class in their merry spin 
of study, dates, and men. 

Then came exams and the merry-go-round slowed down. Most of the 
girls' time was spent in their rooms, where they worried, acquired nervous 
ailments, and chewed off their fingernails as they prepared for their "judg- 
ment day." 

But this was soon over, and the merry-go-round picked up speed as the 
year progressed. Now there was ice skating, skiing, and even broken ankles 
for some. All too soon it was spring and the Freshman Formal arrived. 
An April night found the Class of '57 of Simmons College on the roof of 
the Parker House. A mist of blue and pink net floated by white organdy and 
red taffeta as freshmen girls waltzed with Harvard, M. I. T., and Yale men. 

The merry-go-round tune was running out as final exams approached. 
There was less worry this time, new confidence. Simmons had become a 
friend. The girls left for summer vacation knowing that they would be less 
dizzy and a little safer on their merry-go-round next year. 


So sister class, while we are here, 
let's be pals firm and true. 

At last! We've come into our own as full-fledged Juniors! In September, 
the Junior Welcome Committee, garbed in white, helped our sister class 
of freshmen over that first rough week of orientation and we all established 
relations with our Freshmen Sisters that will last, not only this year, with 
the fun of exchange dinners, Bib Party, and Frosh- Junior Jamboree, but 
which will continue to exist for years to come. 

This year has given all of us, from Library Science to Retailing majors, 
our first taste of real professional training — and we loved it. 

The Junior Prom — our once-in-a-four-year-college-lifetime dinner dance 
— arrived in a flurry of breathless excitement and was a lavish success . . . 
then, suddenly, it was Spring. We felt a surge of pride for those of us who 
took over the all-College offices, but still found it hard to believe that we 
could ever attain the senior status of the cap and gown. 

We lent a helping hand during Graduation Week, participating in the 
Daisy Chain ceremony, at Baccalaureate, and at Commencement. We 
found ourselves laughing, and crying, and sadly good-byeing with all the 
seniors, and we wondered how in the world we would ever fill their shoes. 


. . . Sharing together, friendships we'll never sever 

Not too long ago the class of '56 was singing "Put on your new Simmons 
Blazer — Look sharp as a razor . . . We are the Freshmen of the year." 
Now the sophomore year is nearly through and the class has been so busy 
making new acquaintances, having reunions with old friends and getting 
adjusted to their new dorms and campus life that they have hardly noticed 
the slump that they have heard so much about. 

During the fall the sophs concentrated mostly on classes and weekend 
dating with occasional flutters of social life during the week. They were 
very conservative with their one-thirties, only to find just before Christmas, 
that a possibility of eight one-thirties a semester instead of the old rule was 
being considered for the sophomore class. 

Soon after the Christmas break, talk and preparations began for the 
Sophomore Prom. Girls flurried here and there searching for just the right 
gown to buy and just the right fellow to ask. 

The 1953-54 school year was probably just like other sophomore years 
but to the class of '56 it meant something special; it meant added responsi- 
bility toward the freshmen who lived down the hall, a feeling of respect 
for the seniors on the fourth floor, and just plain friendship for the juniors 
across the hall. It meant you were a year older and sometimes a year wiser. 

They suffered the usual depressed feeling before an hour exam and they 
had their moments of triumph over a difficult course and ecstasy after 
meeting that senior at M. I. T. A few got married, some transferred. 
Another step was completed toward that final goal of graduation. For 
most it was a successful step, one that would help make well-adjusted 
juniors of the class of '56. 


Forevermore, Pals, dear old pals . . . 

Receiving our raps and gowns and registering for the last time in Septem- 
ber emphasized the finality of it all: we were the Seniors. It was our last 
year and a memorable one. 

We witnessed changes in our traditions and in our Campus life. The 
most ramifying change on Campus was the representation of each class 
in all the dorms and houses. Freshman campus was no more. Although it 
meant the dispersal of the class, we lived with the Frosh, Sophs and Juniors 
and loved it, acting as counselors on exams, love, life, and the pursuit of men. 

Another change was Campus Entertainment Night which became a 
sister class tradition. Our last sister class activity began early one morning 
in May, when we were wakened by songs and shouts from the Sophs to 
get up for corsages and shortcakes and a May Pole Dance in our honor. 
It was May Breakfast time. 

Year-long negotiations for the reestablishment of Olde English Dinner 
ceased in victory. George The Dragon's words rang out once again in the 
candlelit dining hall amid aromas of turkey and plum pudding. 

Christmas All College Weekend remained the same wonderful, dreamy 
affair it's always been. The Senior Prom in March seemed like the turning 
point in our lives at Simmons. The weekend of partying interrupted our 
schedule of classes and studies and saw us off on our field study period. 

Seniors traveled as far south as Florida and as far west as Illinois for 
previews of their life after June. It was exciting, challenging, and certainly 
different . . . something to look forward to . . . but we'll always have this 
senior year to look back upon. 

When leave thee we must . . .
